Daily Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) Forecast

Daily Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) Forecast

Balancing Costs

This file contains the Electricity System Operator’s (ESO) half-hourly BSUoS forecast (Balancing Services Use of System charge). The estimated BSUoS charge is calculated by taking the forecast half-hourly balancing costs divided by the forecast BSUoS volume.

COVID Update: The daily BSUoS forecast process has been reviewed to better account for the higher costs experienced during the COVID period and the related very low demand periods. The forecast caps the half-hourly BSUoS charge at £10/MWh as per CMP350 effective from 14th August 2020 until 25th October 2020. The forecast should now be more reflective of the outturn BSUoS charges.

Disclaimer: This forecast is published without prejudice and whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy it is subject to several estimations and forecasts and may not bear relation to either the indicative or actual tariffs Electricity system Operator will publish at a later date.
